We are self nominated “Gay Friendly” funeral directors. Having worked with the Gay and Lesbian community, we appreciate that discrimination is often felt, and whilst dealing with the loss of a loved one can be difficult, enough open respectful communication will ensure quality service and freedom to celebrate their life.
When dealing with vulnerable people, it takes genuine compassion, an open mind and a sense of humour. Every funeral should be poignant and exclusively about the individual. It is about spending quality time, in their family home, sifting through the stories of one’s life, in order to portray the person that was, their life, their trials and triumphs.
Our deep seeded values start with respect for everyone, from the deceased to the family as a whole. It’s about consistency, one contact throughout, from the initial call, support through the legal documentation, event management and attendance on the day.
However, it doesn’t end there, our commitment extends past the funeral day, with little extras from delivering ashes, hand-delivering the death certificate, with certified copies and a helpful list of people to inform.
